Written by Andrew Clover

Illustrated by Ralph Lazar

Part of the Rory Branagan (Detective) Series

The Leap of Death Synopsis

Meet RORY BRANAGAN - he eats bad guys for breakfast. Well, not ACTUALLY. But he IS the best detective in town. Fifth in a hilarious comedy-crime series for readers of 8+. Hello. I am Rory Branagan. I am actually a detective. Me and Cat are at the most AWESOME event ever - Car Bonanza, where people are doing epic car stunts, jumping out of planes and breaking world records. It is amazing. But then one of the stunts goes TERRIBLY WRONG. But was it really an accident, or did someone meddle with the car?! It's a good job me and the Cat are here, because this is a CRIME, and it needs to be solved... There are seven books in the RORY BRANAGAN (DETECTIVE) series and this is the fifth.

The Leap of Death Press Reviews

Praise for Rory Branagan (Detective) 'I read it COVER to COVER immediately. I absolutely loved it and it put a smile the size of the Grand Canyon on my face. It is so delightful ... Ralph's quizzical, characterful and charming illustrations are the perfect foil to that Clover storytelling magic, full of humour, genuinely thrilling and moving to boot.' Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy 'The Rory Branagan books are fun, fast, and child friendly. The perfect link between picture books and full length novels. If your children like books like The Diary of a Wimpy kid, they'll love these.' Adam Baron, author of Boy Underwater 'I adore Rory Branagan, Detective ... perfect for children who love graphic novels, laughter, and actual mysteries. Illustrations (by Ralph Lazar) are hilarious, full of motion, and propel you from page to page because they're irresistible. Gobble up one of these books in an hour or pace yourself to make them last. Five out of five stars!' Alison McGhee, New York Times bestselling author 'Words and illustrations are both very funny and surprisingly touching ... A great new series for young readers.' LoveReading4Kids 'A totally addictive page-turning storyline ... Incredibly clever.' The Bookbag 'A pure page turner ... So good I bought it at lunch and had it finished before I went to bed. Every page is packed with comedy adventure and beautiful illustrations.' Joseph, aged 11 'I loved the book, it was great. It took me one day to read because I couldn't put it down.' G, aged 9 'A very good book. It's very inspirational and shows you to keep trying and don't let anyone put you down. You can be whatever you want to be so follow your dreams. Even if you're small, you can do big things!' Reader, aged 9
